Shouldn't it be Juwan Howard rather than Dwight?

Why do they even make up a reason to put someone on the injured list when it is clear they are just making room. Does anyone believe that Darko Edwards has a quadricep injury?

Now I'm curious to see this - I'm on the Rockets telecast (NBALP), so I have two old white guys with afro wigs...

Exactly Reggie, run in for the little mid-range jumper, that's what you need to be shooting on a regular basis.

That was some impressive D by JO against Howard. The ball didn't even get out of his hands.

Can't seem to score on the other end though...

EDIT: Wow, Sura is kicking our ***. Damn those quick PGs. Or...well, any PG.

Well, this one just slipped out of their hands completely. Jeez, these guys lose their composure so easily. It's rediculous.

Off and running
